2015 Summary of SBDC Spokane client activity

Each year we analyze client activity on a state and center level to show number of small businesses served including jobs created and capital investment.  Capital formation includes owner investment, new building, adding capital equipment or buying a business.  

Throughout Washington state over the past ten years, SBDC clients have created 9,530 jobs, advised over 21,000 clients and our clients have created over $662 million in capital investment.

Last year in the Spokane Center, business advisors, not including international clients, advised 224 businesses. These businesses have created over 100 jobs and infused over $2.5 million into the local economy.

Economic impacts are self-reported and verified by clients.
